I'm so pleased for you,
It's a brilliant site with some very helpful people.
I find it helped me immensely, and Erica (ery1) even found the details of all of my ancestors in the town where the records aren't online or at the Archives until 1851.
It's a pity a lot of English / American people don't know about this site.
I think a lot of people are put off as it seems to be all in Italian and they don't give it a try, but once you get the hang of it and make your way to the "American" forum and can post in English it's easy as the Italian people who can speak English can help.
I would recommend it to anyone researching their trees.

What an experience!!! i found 10 generations of my long lost family!!! the Priest was wonderful to let us search our hearts out!! ha ha it was an amazing trip. i met lots of friends and family I cant wait to go back!! so many miraculous things happened while we were there. i am actually speaking at a family history conference next week and this site will indeed be mentioned at it. i couldnt have done it without all of you. thanks so much you made my dreams come true!!
